- A group of schoolchildren in Palawan were allegedly possessed after they saw an evil spirit of a bloodied woman
- The affected children were immediately rushed to a Catholic church
- All classes in the school were suspended
Fifteen students of a Palawan school (the name of which remains anonymous) were rushed to a Catholic church to drive away the evil spirit that “possessed” them in the middle of their class.
Vicente Tamanyo, the school’s principal, told Dobol B sa News TV that at first, only two students behaved erratically; claiming they saw the spirit of a bloodied woman.
But after a while more students purportedly started to behave strangely, including the principal’s son, so they were immediately taken to a church to seek assistance from the priests and for the students to be prayed over.
Parents, teachers and guardians find it alarming and eerie that the students have claimed that a certain spirit wanted to get close to them. Moreover, the students were speaking a strange language.
The affected children also reportedly exhibited unique strength while being “possessed”; something that’s quite unusual.
And because school officials and the catholic priests must first obtain the parents’ permissions before the tranquilizers could be used, they decided to send the students home instead.
All classes were dismissed to avoid similar occurences within the day.
According to a video interview by Palawan Star to a school official posted on February 8, similar incidents regularly happen in the province. What could be the root of the incidents?
The authorities are investigating the cases.
